This Privacy Policy covers two types of information gathered at Poetic -- personal information and aggregated data. “Personal information” refers to data you voluntarily provide that identifies you and/or the company on whose behalf you are contacting Poetic. Personal information includes such identifying information as your name, physical address, e-mail address, phone number, company affiliation, business or taxpayer identification number, and social security number. For example, you might provide personal information when you submit an application for employment or resume, or when you submit a request for additional information from the company.

You may have entered into a separate agreement with Poetic governing your access to and use of poetic.io, third-party websites, or other work with the company. If so, this Privacy Policy will still apply, but that separate agreement will control in the event of any inconsistencies with any provisions of this Privacy Policy.

Use of Personal Information
Poetic is committed to protecting the privacy of all of its users.

Except as expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, Poetic will never willfully disclose or make personal information about you available to any third party without first having provided you notice in this Privacy Policy or receiving your permission at the time you submit the personal information. Poetic may also use personal information to contact you to keep you informed of current and future products, services and other opportunities the company provides.  

Permission for Use
At the time you submit personal information or make a request, the intended use of the information you submit will be apparent in the context in which you submit it and/or because Poetic states the intended purpose. By submitting personal information, you are giving your consent and permission for any use that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy or disclosed elsewhere at poetic.io at the point you submit such personal information, and such consent will be presumed by Poetic, unless you state otherwise at the time you submit the personal information.

General Information Regarding Online Privacy and Information You Provide
At Poetic, we strive to protect your privacy and will attempt to comply with every aspect of this Privacy Policy. Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure the security of the information you send us over the Internet 100% of the time. For example, Poetic does not generally use encryption and cannot protect against all unauthorized access. Consequently, Poetic makes no guarantee or warranty with respect to this Privacy Policy, including without limitation, protecting your privacy, the privacy of any company for whom you may be using the website, or the confidentiality of information about either of you. Therefore, when you supply information to Poetic, you and any company on whose behalf you supply such information do so at your own risk and you both assume full responsibility for the security, confidentiality and use of such information.
